Hi UG,

I have only ever used a mutifx which is currently in the FX loop of my ENGL screamer (but is not used very much as it kills my tone). But my question is: where does a wah pedal go from the setup standpoint? Does it go guitar --> wah --> amp?

I have heard that modulation pedals are best in the FX loop, but are there pedals about that dont suck the tone from the amp itself when the loop is in use?

Thanks!

Yep, guitar>wah>amp. If you have more than one effect in front of the amp, then as a general rule of thumb you have the wah first.

actually there is no rule for where the wah wah goes, you just put it where you think that it sounds better.
Looking for a new sig!

Yes, that's a no brainer, but i was speaking generally Samerika.

Modulation effects are usually put in the Effects loop, but it really depends on where you like them.

modulation always goes next to last, right before delay or reverbs. wah usually goes very first, or right after an OD/distortion.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

Yeah I know what i meant are there any that wont effect the tone of my amp (appart from the sound wanted, obviously)?

Effects that have true bypass switching. Basically, the effect and all its signal path is completely removed from your guitar's signal path, thereby not affecting your tone.

^Noo...

I'd go either Wah-Distortion or Distortion-Wah. Depends on the intensity desired. i like my wah to be really strong a lot of the time, so i go wah first. But whatever you do, Phasing and Flanging last, otherwise your distortion will sound more digital than it needs to.

do not hate on the setup

ps i do move around the chorus a little
the reason theyre like that is because theyre always at really slow there just there for subtle differences in tone when i play certain things
